Hissssss! Watch out for that snake! This book takes adventurous readers on a quest into the world of the copperhead. Students will discover a slithery way of life as they learn about the copperhead's impressive size, fearsome fangs, and special senses such as its inner ears. Full-color photos give kids an opportunity to identify these poisonous reptiles by their beautiful scale colors and patterns. Readers will also observe how clever copperheads use their natural camouflage to disappear from sight! A range map supplements chapter information about the surprising places these pit vipers live. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index compliment the chapter text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
